A child was taken to a local hospital and others were injured after a stolen vehicle crashed into their day care following a police pursuit.

Police say the pursuit began Wednesday morning in the midtown area after they were alerted to a vehicle that had been stolen from southwest Little Rock.

The officers lost sight of the vehicle and pulled off the pursuit. However, the driver kept going, ultimately losing control and crashing into the day care facility at House of Bethesda Christian Faith Church on Springer Blvd and Roosevelt Rd.

Police say one child was taken to the hospital to be checked out, but the child's injuries are not serious. Some other children also received minor injuries.

Two people are in custody. Their names have not yet been released.
